walked to the opera house in clear skies; walked upstairs to find it pouring; the sheets of rain over the harbour are gorgeous
drinks/dinner at grasshopper; bar too crowded straight after work but nice and chilled later; resto upstairs great atmosphere and delicious!
I am *so* ready to abandon the iPhone, and the htc desire is gorgeous, but I really don't want to return to the days of painful syncing!
When I say “HTML5”, I mean effectively “Has <video>”. After all, the page you are now reading has a <!DOCTYPE> […]
picked up my suit; had been worrying all week that it was the wrong colour or wrong size; delighted to find it's perfect on both counts
saw my first facebook "like" thing in the wild; i'm actually incredibly creeped out seeing my mug staring out from someone else's website
used up my @sydfilmfest flexipass and there are still another 10 films I want to see! I'd have to split myself in two to manage them all tho
wow; dominos hijack crustpizza.com.au with an "eat fresh" promo; clever, but spammy when I was actually looking for crust.com.au

this is why i love io9: actual science, along with the fiction: what's the universe expanding into? http://io9.com/5526583/ (mind explodes)
the book of eli is uneven, but ultimately worth seeing simply because it does new and interesting things with western mythology
seeing all the uniforms out for anzac day makes me appreciate that our society doesn't normally make its military so visible
so in the last two days I've had pol roger, moet rosé, and bollinger; I don't know what I can follow with tonight that will compare

coco & igor is gorgeous; leaves me wanting to see some stravinsky performed; sydney symphony maybe? /cc @sso_notes
worked out my walking route to the new office; getting across bridge st is harder than it should be though!
so i gave up drinking at home, "for lent", and here it is two weeks later and i still haven't brought any alcohol home; that was unexpected
